20) Woman with Health Issues not Ready for a Third Child

I’m 20yrs olds, I have a 9 week old baby and a 17month old toddler. With my last pregnancy I went into preterm labour 5 times from 23 weeks. (Not to say we got told she was ectopic at 5weeks and had to have a tube removed, then to terminate at 13 weeks because of my radical blood sugar levels).I have had to have both my girls via c-section, since then my healthy has some what been declining since falling pregnant with our first.

I have currently (this week) found out I have a underlining autoimmune disordered and have to go to specialist for testing, scans etc.

Needless to say we have decided with my health and our baby only been 9 weeks old it is not the time for a third child and need to get my health issues under control.

20) Woman with Previous Pregnancy Issues Not Able to Have Another Child

I have a 9 month old baby whom I am still breast feeding. The pregnancy was incredibly difficult and I nearly died from blood loss (post partum hemmorage) giving birth last time. Then the baby ended up being a spirited high need baby who is incredibly difficult to take care of. During the first 8 months after he was born I never once slept more than 3 hours in a row. I am absolutely exhausted from the way the pregnancy went and the way the baby is and cannot face doing it all over again. Also finances are tight and we cannot afford another baby. I got pregnant because I was being lax about taking the mini pill forgetting to take it regularly and also it was giving me terrible side effects so in the end I threw in away thinking I will go and ask the doctor for a different pill to try. But in the meantime I got pregnant.
